  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Born in 1976, Lecco, Italy. Lives and works in Genoa. In 2004 he received a degree in architecture from the Politecnico of Milan, whereupon he decided to devote himself to painting. The artist is particularly keen on depicting the human condition, detailing in his painting images derived from his daily walks through the streets. The life of Villa’s characters belongs to a story without plot, where figures chase one another beyond their physical presence into an imaginative athmosphere of elusive, subtle anxiety that surrounds all of us.
